fugate to do that and signed off on jeb bush to do this, there was this hangover from katrina going back in the bush administration and there's always been a point of emphasis, if you will, on fema by the obama administration. i think frankly it won't have mattered who came into the presidency in the post katrina world there was going to be an emphasis on fema. you weren't going to let that get politicized. yes, it's a political appointee and you're going to have somebody who came with a background to do this stuff. so i think that they realize that it's a high-wire act, this emergency management business. and most of the time if you do a good job it's good politics. if you blow it, it's really bad politics. >> i agree. >> it can be unrecoverable politics. so this is a case where good politics and good public policy and good management all converge. it's good politics to do a good job. you're not playing one side against the other. >> you know, i've always thought that the democrats being the government party because they believe in government more than republicans owe a greater debt, a
with hurricane katrina. here's live in studio with me just moments away. >>> and you know this storm is throwing a big monkey-wrench into the battle for the white house. battleground states are in hurricane sandy's path. which candidate does the storm help or hurt? what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what matters? maybe your bank account is taking too much time and maybe it's costing too much money. introducing bluebird by american express and walmart. your alternative to checking and debit. it's loaded with features, not fees. because we think your money should stay where it belongs. with you. the value you expect. the service you deserve. it feels good to bluebird. get it at your local walmart. >>> this is your prais for breaking coverage of hurricane sandy and the election. we will be carrying this at least until 11:00 p.m. eastern tonight, possibly longer if it warrants, because this storm is forecast to be a monster when it makes landfall. don't go anywhere. a lot of people said they are holed up in hotel rooms and stuck at airports watchi
, and that would make sandy among the most expensive. hurricane katrina, the price tag $108 billion. yes, and that was just in money terms, not in people terms. >> right now, we are going to go back to baltimore. are things getting worse? >> things are getting worse. people have been talking about this storm. is worse than it was last year, with i read, for example. we are dealing with some really cold temperatures. not only with the reagan, looking at the rain falling at a lamppost, i will tell you what. these winds have continued to pick up in the last hour. i want to give you a bit of detail. 311 is fully operational. they are asking you to call 311 if you have a cottage. -- an outage. we have got 2000 police officers. also, swift water rescue is in place. we do know that these conditions are going to get worse. we also know that housing inspectors are out and about. wherever you are right now, do not try to go anywhere. six shelters in baltimore city. the rain is starting to come down. we will continue to monitor things. >> thank you. >> the use of 911 versus 311. the mayor had remin
to katrina, that very first night when people thought the storm had passed, what we thought the conditions were, when daylight came the next morning and we found out it was vastly different and much worse. we're hoping that we don't have that situation here in new york. we don't have levees in new york, but when daylight comes, we may be open for a rude awakening. as for thathat's dangling over the city, make no mistake about it. that is extremely serious. when you have a piece of metal like that hanging, think of a hanger and something called reverse bending fatigue. you keep bending it enough, and the wind bends it and bends it, just like with a hanger, back and forth, back and forth, it will eventually break. let's hope that is not going to happen here. that's a very dangerous situation, a very large crane. now to go to the very latest on sandy's path. meteorologist rick reichmuth in the fox extreme weather center. rick? >> i walked by that crane this morning on my way to work and i saw it. i thought how is that crane still up there when you've got winds at that height gusting to 90 to

associated with the storm. point of reference, hurricane katrina, around $80 billion of damage alone with another $80 billion in economic damage in the aftermath of katrina. so 20 right now for damage in new york, plus another 20, 25 economic activity. i think those numbers will go substantially higher when they really find out. >> steve: plus there are so many houses they haven't been able to get to. the barrier islands south on the jersey shore, people haven't been able to get there because they were essentially washed out. >> gretchen: the interesting thing about politics relating to the storms is what is the right move for politicians, especially when we're six days away from a monumental presidential election? remember the scathing interpretation that president bush got with regard to hurricane katrina. so what is the right response? the president has to come and has to survey the situation, so what should mitt romney do? he's our -- can you imagine the discussions going on inside these camps about what is the right tone? what looks correct? >> eric: i hate to do this, but i rem

orleans during katrina. this is the coldest hurricane. typically you get wet during a hurricane but you're not cold like you during a snowstorm. the today we're getting both. water blowing into your jacket. we're getting creative on how to stay warm out here. we are talking to larry williams who has been generous letting us stay on his property all day. thanks for coming back with us, larry. at this point, you have been out here all day. what is your take on this storm and how you eventually think it is going to impact you here? >> i'm very relieved. with the winds the way they have blown all day long coming out of the west, it has kind of pushed the water out, which is what we like to see. unfortunately it does impact other people. after going through isabel, i couldn't ask for a better storm. >> that is a saying a lot because of the conditions that you're enduring here. you got your boat out of the water. your home was leveled pretty much by isabel. at this point what can you do? stay up and ride it out and take a look at what happens? >> actually i think -- i would not say we're safe
katrina, people were forced to abandon their pets. are there any shelters that you know of that will accept families with their animals? >> i don't know right now, but i would say everybody should keep in touch with media, like yourselves, because as shelters open, they will let us know if they are pet friendly. but certainly if you are sheltering at home, you should have what you need for your pet and have it now and have it ready and have three days worth of it. >> what's the protocol to getting some of your team members on the ground, say there's a situation where there's a tense emergency and your help is needed, how does somebody contact you specifically and put in a request? >> what they do is they will go through their local emergency agencies like the police, fire department or their governments and we get called. then our volunteers and staff who are trained in these services are at the ready and provide the help that is needed. >> cheryl kravitz with the national capital area red cross. cheryl, you stay safe as well in this store. thank you for your help. >> th
. conversely, if there is a problem. we think about katrina and other things, this could be bad for the president. but let's say that the federal response is appropriate. well, people just expect him to do that. the real issue here is florida, virginia, new hampshire, later this week, ohio. what happens to this much-needed push for early voting by the democrats that they have stated their victory on. what happens to that. there is torrential rain lashing of them. the president can't afford to give up any day or any minute of this voting drive that is so crucial to democratic. megyn: chris, thank you so much. also in the crosshairs of the storm, we will continue to watch it there as well is here. chris mentioned hurricane sandy causing problems and virginia. i mentioned the videotape earlier. near people already said to be without power. authorities say that up to 1 million people could be in the dark when all is said and done. power outages being reported in the new york area. the city of norfork, virginia. we will show you the tracking of the storm that could damage a chunk of
a month after the storm, katrina, on the mississippi coast, speaking with the mayor of a small town down there where for a mile inland everything was rubble. he started to tell me, our problems now are mental. walking around in this, living in this, not being able to making progress, and a lot of people had severe psychological problems. is that something that is on your mind yet? >>guest: our biggest fear right now is people are going to become anxious when it comes to getting order to their lives. the longer it takes for them to get some sort of order, the more that depression will set in because this is their life. >>shepard: certainly the we are thinning about you. what do you need down there, quickly, before we go? >>guest: electricity. that will make all the difference in the word because we have, we cannot by any food, we cannot buy gasoline and we cannot heat our home. we have gas, we have good water, we need electric. we hope, we have 10 percent of the town lit up again and we are hoping they make great progress as they normally do. that is what we need. >>shepard: we are too, m

is unprecedented. talk about losses we may see, going to surpass andrew and could be as high as katrina, somewhere in middle of that. closing the exchange for two days haven't seen since that -- seen that since the blizzard of 1888. for weather purposes. it's being done for safety issues. liz: we're looking at a live picture of the statue of liberty and that of course says it all. this is the new york post cover. it shows of course the statue of liberty with an umbrella and the word closed. new york is for all intense and purposes closed. we are not. very important to point out. we are not. fox business and fox news are going to be going wall to wall coverage. so we will be here for you as long as you have the power on to feed your cable obviously, but nicole, thank you very much. nicole: thanks, liz. of course when they reopen, there will be a lot to watch. liz: uh-huh. we should mention, the bond market will be closed tomorrow. shutting down trading on wall street, can't stress enough this is a huge deal and a huge decision. as nicole mentioned, the last time this happened as it was regarding we
andrew first time, con for hurricane katrina second, and then president obama used it for hurricane isaac to help the people of louisiana and mississippi prepare for isaac just a few months but this is a big deal that the president made this announcement before the hurricane arrived. >> stand by, general. i need to get to boston. he's in boston, coast guard admiral dan abel, he's standing by. because, believe it or not, some people maybe are going to ride out the storm and we want to talk about -- it's going to be a search rescue if people ride out the storm. so admiral, what's the best -- what are people -- what's the best thing people can do to keep safe so you don't have to deal with search and rescue? >> right, don. well, the first thing is folks should already have their boats secured and the waterfront secured and it's time to seek safe haven. at this point if you have got a boat in the water, it's time to lever it where it is and time to go asheer. we've worked with a couple cases this weekend with kayakers trying to enjoy the surf, even a guy on a dingy going out to his mooring bu

perspective, there was a sturgeon that happened during hurricane katrina, not in new orleans but in south mississippi that was higher than 30 feet. the highest ever recorded. and that wiped out entire communities for a mile inland. here we are talking up to 11 feet and if it happens and the surge happens the way they have said, it will flood much of lower manhattan, it's already flooded the fdr drive along the side and it's just beginning because high tide is 45 minutes away. atlantic city's public safety director says much of that city is now under water. some pictures of road 30. one of the major roads into atlantic city. a writer for the philadelphia enquirer newspaper nearby sent us these pictures. part of the city's historic board walk is now in the sea. other parts have collapsed there. and the new jersey governor chris christie ordered all of atlantic city's casinos to shut down. he did that, it's only the fourth time officials have closed those casinos since the city legalized gambling more than three decades ago. storm chaser dennis sherrod joins us now. is he live in atlantic ci
. disasters which happened to fall into the middle of political moments. katrina. the 2008 economic collapse. the aurora shootings earlier this year. the hurricane andrew in 1992. that fell in august. how easy is it for a candidate or a politician of any stripe to mishandle that kind of situation? >> i think we've seen in the past how easy it is to mishandle and as a result we're seeing a much better handling of it right now for presidnt obama and for mitt romney and in general from some of the other politicians we've seen on tv and other places. i think this is one of the few situations, unfortunately, where basic human decency and good politics dove tail. the best thing you can do as a political candidate right now is to appear to care more about what's going on on the ground with people who are suffering than you do about your own election. ideally that's motivated by a real feeling there rather than simply showing it but certainly politicians have learnd lessons from past generations who have seemed insensitive. >> ifill: it's fair to say a lot of thought goes into how to walk that tight
, reminds me of the hospital stories we heard in katrina and new orleans there must have been patients on ventilators that had to be manually kept alive and getting babies out of the nicu in the dead of night, when the power has gone out. i can't imagine how difficult that was. >> it reminded me very much of my time in new orleans after katrina. the adults, it was interesting, the adults on respirators, they batteries. they were brought down, some of them 15 flights of stairs on respirators with batteries. for some reason the neonatal -- the little newborn babies, their respirators did not have babies. doctors or nurses had to do bagging, where the doctors, the nurse squeezes air right into the baby's lungs so they're walking nine flights down from the nicu, while the whole time squeezing air into the babies' lungs. >> as far as you know, no fatalities. >> as far as we know, all is doing well. some people right now, anderson are asking the question, why didn't they evacuate sooner. i think that's a question that is going to be talked about at nyu for a while now. >> yeah. certainly the
that already have post true mat yuck stress from katrina, 9/11, this brings it back some is driven by the media but also politicians that want people to be fearful so they get out of the way and save lives. >> of course. you know you don't want to underpredict and you don't want to overpredict. so they are trying to get that just right. >> what can you do? >> you should watch a show like this where the attitude is measured and nothing is hyped. but when you hear somebody talking like this, there is a storm, doesn't matter what they say. if they are talking like this your adrenaline is up. i saw on the upper west side, there were people coming out of a meat store carrying what looked like half a cow. it is like a mob mentality. i think probably like -- box of cereal and a quart of milk will get you through a couple of day. >> right. >> live on the upper west side. i was many cancerying meat but one of the people that went to the store. why am i here? >> because everybody else is here. there are lines. there is a line. >> i better go get something. what do we do
't iraq. it wasn't wmds. it wasn't the horror of all of that. it was katrina and being caught sleeping and feeling like they had abandoned people in new orleans. it impacted them in a deeply personal way. these -- obviously people's lives are on the line here, too, but it also -- it's a sign of leadership. >> there is no pollster in the world who can get at the feelings, the emotions, of someone, a family, who has lost power for three or four days. what does that do to this election? that kind of emotional wild card. there's no way of telling what people feel or who they get angry at. >> one thing the president benefits from, i think, because again, i don't think the white house is going to mess this up. i bet you $10,000, they've got in the tri-state area, three extraordinarily aggressive governors, two democrats, one republican. but chris christie -- >> good way of putting it. >> cuomo and malloy is going to be very aggressive and work very close with the president and the white house because they are concerned about the people, not just the politics of it, they're concerned about th
to here. general russel honore. you commanded the military in new orleans post katrina. you know a thing or two about emergency preparedness and destruction on the scale which we will likely sk lly see. welcome. before we talked a preparedness and the president's point of how they've been working so hard to preposition resources, let me begin with the story off the coast of north carolina. this massive ship. there were 16 people on board. it began to sink. there was a distress call, and the next thing they know the coast guard ends up getting called in to try to rescue. here are the pictures from atop this coast guard helicopter. tell me what you know. what do you make of this? >> this is what the coast guard does that nobody else can do other than some of your active duty military. go out and save mariners. it's a part of the national mission. nobody does it better. thank god for the coast guard to get out there this morning and stave majority of the people. the story is not over with. how that ship ended up in the location it was in, but they were able to get some of them out there. ho
about hurricane relief. he was talking a moment ago what happened during hurricane katrina and some folks being moved from there from louisiana to massachusetts. let's listen to the governor. >> randy owen from alabama to be here. [applause] he's an extraordinary guy. he will probably tell you the story about storms, tornado actually that hit his county in alabama and described why it is that he is here. we appreciate the fact that he is agreed to come entertain and bring people in who have in turn brought in goods as their cover charge if you will to be here this morning. thank you for your help and your generosity. by the way if you have a little extra, if you have more canned goods, bring them along to our victory centers that are open. but also if you can write a check to american red cross, that is welcome as well. we're looking for all the help we can get for all the families in need. thank you for your generosity. thank you for your support. i will go to work here at the table. get things sorted and boxed up and loaded in the trucks. and for the rest of you, enjoy the concert
katrina survivor. you think about being drawn or experiencing a trip of uncertainty, moving from -- speaking about what the pastor says, moving from dome to dome and ending up in a place of where, again, uncertainty starts. one stabilizing factor for her throughout the years is that the center has been there to help her cope and develop coping strategies, physical therapy to assist her with her gait that is slowing down. speaking to the some of the issues when we think about the elderly, having enough funds just for transportation to get to and from places like the center. metro access is not affordable, if you're living off of $600 to $700 a month. if you're coming to the center, you're paying $6 a day. that's quite expensive. when you think about food insecurity, by partnering with asbury united methodist church, we're able to offer balanced, nutritious meals. for the working caregiver, we give them hope and also provide them a sense of peace of mind because they can work knowing their loved ones are in a safe, stimulating and loving place. how does this impact the community? i
